Attraction Information

The Tower of London, also known as the Bloody Tower, is one of England’s greatest medieval fortresses, a royal palace and an infamous prison, as you're thrown into a history lesson like no other! Throw yourself right back into the gory old days on tours, within exhibits and through the ages, while exploring English history. 

History of the Tower of London
Explore the historic royal palaces and the fortress and discover the impenetrable defensive structures and defensive walls that were put in place to defend the tower. Find out what it was like to be a medieval soldier working in this cramped place. Meet the legendary Yeoman Warder and famous ravens, before heading over to Lower Wakefield Tower. As you explore the evilest methods of gruesome torture in British history, that were used at the Tower to torture its prisoners, especially in the 16th century and 17th century. 48 prisoners are known to have been horrifically physically tortured and interrogated to give up the names of their accomplices, but there were many more who were put in solidarity confinement and were held to psychological punishments. A gruesome discovery that if you have a stomach of steel to handle, you can learn about the stories of pain.

There's a lot of interesting history in the medieval palace of the Tower of London, in the 13th century, 1214 while the king was residing at Windsor Castle, they led an army into London to siege the Tower. And in the 15th century, the Princes in the Tower mysteriously disappeared...  Did you also know the Tower of London is the most complete example of an 11th century fortress palace still remaining in Europe? A famous monument that is worth visiting when in the city walls of London. 

The Tower started to gain tourist popularity in the 19th century much to the dismay of the Duke of Wellington. And by the end of the century over 500,000 tourists came to visit the castle every year. 

White Tower
Then wander over to Britain's most famous castle - White Tower. It was originally built to intimidate and terrify Londoners and deter foreign invaders. It's also a World Heritage Site, so it's pretty impressive and worth a visit! Inside the castle is a unique Romanesque chapel which was built in the 11th century as a Chapel of St John the Evangelist. You can discover lots of historical exhibits here, like the 350-year-old exhibition of the Line of Kings, and a collection of treasures including royal armouries on display and commemorative souvenirs. In the late 13th century, the Tower became a repository for important documents and precious items owned by the Crown.

Beefeater Tour
On the Beefeater tour, experience the interactive Armoury in Action exhibition and, if you dare, take a trip to the top floor and the original 18th-century executioner's block. Your little warriors will then be ready for battle! The Tower is under attack and they must join the royal guard in beating back the terrible Red Earl and his advancing hordes. Will the ancient battlements hold? Find out in a live re-enactment.

If you're looking for something amazing and a break from the gruesome history, find the Superbloom moat! An occasion that marked the incredible Platinum Jubilee, where over 20 million seeds were planted in the moat that will create a wild and natural landscape. Encouraging wildlife such as bees to pollinate and butterflies to soar. A flora paradise for wildlife - with a vibrant collection of blue, pink, green, yellow, orange and more flowers blooming all around. Open from June to September, you can visit the Tower of London and Superbloom! You can even slide down into the moat and experience a new naturalistic landscape environment.
Visit the Royal Beasts exhibit where you’ll learn all about the exotic animals which were held captive in the Tower for more than 600 years! And to finish with a bang, be dazzled by the 23,578 gems that make up the Crown Jewels in the Jewel House. Just don’t try and pinch any or you might find yourself up on the executioner’s block!

Food & Drink
If you're looking for a hearty meal the New Armouries Cafe is the best place to find fish & chips, a selection of sandwiches, soups, salads and baked goods. For a good meal and a fantastic view of the Tower of London, the Ravens Cafe is a great spot to hear the calls of the ravens too! Of course, if you want a more upper-class dining experience, The Reveller and The Glass Rooms are the ideal place for a delectable afternoon tea where you can overlook the iconic London skyline and the River Thames.
